    I’m an overseas Student holding a Temporary (class TU) (subclass 500) visa. My partner is studying and she is the main applicant.
    I’m allowed to attend one course for up to 3month due my visa restrictions, and I was wondering if I could enrol in your RPL course for Hospitality Management.
    I currently work as Restaurant Manager in Sydney but I don’t have any relevant certification yet.
    Please let me know if you can help me.

      Hello Giorgio,

      Unfortunately, for the RPL program, depending on the course, we will require you to have 2-5 years of local hands-on work experience under the supervision of a licensed professional in Australia to be eligible for a RPL qualification.
